Official Blizzard Quote:

The Patch 5.2 Malevolent gear may have more PvP power and Resilience, but Patch 5.1 Malevolent gear has higher Item levels and as such stats. To have more clarity on this you can read the below comparisons:

5.1 Malevolent Gear has a higher ilevel than 5.2 Malevolent Gear.
5.2 Malevolent Gear has more PvP Power/Resilience than 5.1 Malevolent Gear.
5.1 Malevolent Gear
483 ilevel (491 with 2/2 upgrades)
~30 ilevels of PvP Power and Resilience
5.2 Malevolent Gear
476 ilevel
~36 ilevels of PvP Power and Resilience

In the end, the effective Ilvl of patch 5.2 and 5.1 Malevolent gear puts them at about equal. The reason for lowering the item level and increasing the PvP stats for the 5.2 version of Malevolent gear is because we want players to run 5.0 LFR, this means that the Ilvl of honor gear needs to be lower than the entry requirement of 483. The result of this was lowering the Ilvl (stats) of the gear, but increasing it's PvP power and resilience to compensate. That difference in power you feel is going to be extremely prominent, is actually quite minor.

Yeah, the issue here is that the Haste/crit/mastery/spirit is lower then the 5.1 gear.

also that the intellect/agility/str that provide Crit/crit/attackpower is lower meaning lower damage in general, as for ex spell power(intellect) scales better around 14.8k then pvp power would do +- if you want crit or not.

this i think will put the gear behind the 5.1, seeing you will have less haste(cast speed and dots) and less spirit(mana reg) and crit (critical %) then the 5.1 season gear.

I don't get how they "even out" when resi scales like garbage on the ptr, and power doesn't make up for stam+main stat

I think that there is fundamentally something wrong with the fact that Blizzard doesn't think their own content is good enough to make people participate in it without being forced too.

If you made a good game, and were convinced people wanted to play all aspects of it then you shouldn't need to force people into it.

If they actually balanced this game nobody would need to worry about gear honestly.

You would be suprised, how dead that server would be.
